Overview of conditions treated at Wayne Health

What is benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)?

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is an enlarged prostate gland. The prostate gland surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. As the prostate gets bigger, it may squeeze or partly block the urethra. This often causes problems with urinating.

What are the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)?

BPH causes urinary problems such as trouble starting and stopping the flow of urine, needing to urinate often, or feeling like your bladder isn’t completely empty after you urinate. BPH does not cause prostate cancer and does not affect a man’s ability to father children. It does not cause erection problems.

Advancing research and medical education

Wayne Health physicians and researchers are also faculty members of the Wayne State University School of Medicine who conduct research and clinical studies. This makes the latest treatments and clinical trials available to you sooner than other health providers without a medical school affiliation.

WSU faculty clinicians participate in the Michigan Urological Surgery Improvement Collaborative (MUSIC), established in 2011, which is a physician-led quality improvement collaborative comprised of a consortium of urology practices in Michigan. The collaborative is designed to evaluate and improve the quality and cost efficiency of prostate cancer care.

Through the Urology department at Wayne Health and Wayne State University School of Medicine, and in coordination with Harper Hospital and Karmanos Cancer Institute, we offer a variety of clinical trials for both benign and malignant conditions. WSU Urology faculty currently have clinical research trials open in the following areas: bladder cancer; renal cell (kidney) cancer; testicular cancer; and prostate cancer.
